Not yet... :lol: I think it gets worse before it gets better! Everyone's gone a bit dithery today... forgetting what we were talking about half way through a sentence etc but by tomorrow it should start to pick up and the tigger impressions will begin :mrgreen: . The juices are getting yuckier - celery, broccoli and fennel for lunch today :shock: I couldn't finish it, nor a spirulina shot, very nutritious but tastes like detergent. Have to keep reminding myself what good they are doing :roll: .

I hadn't anticipated what fab community spirit there would be here though - I thought I'd be spending all my time on my own reading or whatever, but what a lovely interesting bunch of people, they are all really good fun. If we could all get drunk it would be brilliant. x

OMG sounds.... far too healthy to me :mrgreen: You are so brave though! You'll look all shiny and brand new when you get home!

I couldn't imagine exercising with such low energy. Maybe you'll feel bouncier after sleep

Feeling at little guilty reading this and scoffing a packet of ginger nuts with a mug of coffee. Well done for your perseverance. I'm sure I would have ran all the way home by now.
At least you will have gained a sense of acheivement. I will have gained a few more pounds. :wink:

Well done you. x

Well, I'm half way through and I'm feeling really great today!! :D I'm not hungry at all, weirdly. The mind detox is coming along nicely (the real reason I came)... all the yoga and meditation are working magic :mrgreen: .

I don't look any thinner though, nor is my skin radiant and glowing... Probably will happen tomorrow... :wink:

PS Another piece of good fortune... I found a giant piece of carrot in the bottom of my vegetable water this evening :D :D :D

I think I can say this for all of us.... we are proud of you Julie!
I've had a chuckle at the potato crumbs and chunk of carrot! Its amazing how fast we start to appreciate the simple things in life when we have to go without! :lol:
Anyway, hope you enjoy the rest of the week, and I second Bid's suggestion for getting some booze; to be consumed behind the bike sheds on Friday! :lol: :lol: :lol:

Aww, fanks Jo.

We're late tonight Helen :D , had an NLP workshop after 'dinner' (neuro linguistic programming? I think?) Very interesting, I can sort my life out now :wink:

Still feeling great - I'm bouncing off the walls in fact! Even getting used to the evil juices.

Tomorrow we BREAK THE FAST! Hurray! With slices of raw vegetables though... booo! [insert crestfallen icon]. Apparently food must be reintroduced slowly and sensibly over 3-5 days ie no stuffing my face with cake just yet. And no alcohol for 10 days (yeah, whatever, there is zero chance of that happening :lol: )

I have to say though, I have thoroughly enjoyed every minute of this week, one of the best things I've ever done. Will be a bit teary tomorrow no doubt :oops:. And a big thank you to you lovely lot for all your support xx
